- Mantis added a very neat training system marketed as the Mantis Laser Training Academy. The system records your shot placement and grades your shooting. The app features a number of timed and not timed, basic and advanced drills. The market release could not have been more opportune given ammunition shortages. To quote a hackneyed cliche "repetition is the mother of learning" and the Laser Academy provides a safe and fun training environment to improve your shooting skills.I'm suiting up the FNX-45 Tactical with a Vortex Optics Viper red dot. The 6 MOA dot is easily visible and ideally suited for your optics ready pistol. Catch my review in April on www.twobirdsflyingpub.comIn my next review, I'd like to turn you on to binoculars that you can buy at a street price of under $100 USD with an aluminum body, O-ring sealed and the optical performance of Leica.
